George Osborne criticised over Tampon Tax controversy

Chancellor George Osborne is once again being criticised over his handling of the tampon tax after he pledged all the money made from the tax will go towards funding women’s charities.

The pledge has been seen by many as an attempt to appease those who feel disillusioned by the controversial tax.

The controversy stems from tampons and other sanitary items being classed as a luxury item, despite millions of women using them for sanitation purposes.

Cassie Agbehenu, a local women’s rights activist, lashed out in a targeted response to women MP’s who voted in favour of keeping tampon tax

“If we’re thinking about people who really do have to put in the purse strings and think about what they’re spending and think about which things are necessary and which things are not, then we’re getting that answer for people who really don’t need to worry about that thing.

“So when the time of the month comes and she’s walking around, would she feel comfortable not using those?

“I would say to that woman, if she was unable to afford sanitary products, would she feel comfortable not using them at all?

“If she had no money. if she had to choose between sanitary products and putting food on the table for her family, what would she choose?”

Stella Creasy has led the debate in the House of Commons in recent weeks where she lambasted the fact that, despite the so called “luxury” status of tampons,  Jaffa Cakes are not taxed because they are classed as a “necessity” whereas tampons are classed as a “luxury” item and therefore can be taxed.

  3. I run a vape store directory site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that additionally markets CBD goods. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have asked us to take away PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store web directory. We do not retail CBD products such as CBD oil. We merely provide online marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Leading Health Retailer and if you take a close look, you will see that they sell a relatively considerable series of CBD products, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It emerges that PayPal is employing contradictory standards to many different firms. As a result of this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has constricted my payment possibilities and now, I am seriously dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have sought advice from a barrister from a Magic Circle law practice in London and they explained that what PayPal is doing is altogether illegal and inequitable as it ought to be applying a systematic standard to all firms. I am yet to get in touch with an additional lawyer from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
